Odell Beckham’s taken a lot of criticism here throughout his 1 1/4 seasons as a member of the Browns,
It was a long wait, but Beckham played his best game as a Brown, scoring three touchdowns, including a 50-yard score on an end around that secured the victory for Cleveland.
Beckham caught five of his eight targets for 81 yards. Most importantly, he impacted the offense through the course of the entire game. He didn’t fade into the background after a nice first-quarter grab, or drop passes for first downs.
And while Beckham’s burst into the end zone sealed the victory, that play might not even be the most memorable of the day. That came in the first quarter, when the Browns reversed to Jarvis Landry, who connected with his childhood friend for an improbable touchdown.
Beckham was an elite receiver and a difference maker. if this is who the Browns get moving forward, the offense will stay dangerous.
